Chocolate French Silk Pie

Sometimes you just want to indulge in some decadent chocolate dessert. Well, this is one that is super easy to make and absolutely delicious. Try to imagine it with a cup of hot coffee–mmmmmmmm!

2 cups butter
1-1/2 cups sugar
4 ounces unsweetened baking chocolate
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
4 eggs

1 9″ pie shell

1 cup heavy whipping cream
3 tablespoons sugar

Bake the pie shell according to the directions on your package. I use Pet-Ritz deep dish, but even a store brand works well.

While the pie shell is baking, get started on the filling:

Place the butter in a mixer at medium speed. Slowly pour in the sugar.

In a double boiler, melt the chocolate, stirring constantly. Let cool for a few minutes before adding to the sugar mixture.

Add the vanilla.

Put the mixer speed on medium and add the eggs, one at a time, allowing 5 minutes of mixing between adding each egg.

Pour the filling into the pie shell (make sure it is cool by now).

Refrigerate for about 4 hours.

After the pie has been in the refrigerator for a while, whip the heavy cream together with the sugar. You can decorate the top of the pie with the whipped cream, or store in a bowl and put a dollop on each piece as you serve it.
